Member of Parliament for Kumbungu, Ras Mubarak kept to his words and arrived in Parliament on his old bicycle as he promised.

On his arrival there were five media houses who were in Parliament awaiting his arrival and during an interaction with the media he pointed out that he did this in a way of showing that he stands with the working class and the masses.

He further pointed out that he enjoyed the ride to Parliament because he feels energized.

When questioned why he embarked on such a move if it is not aimed at scoring cheap popularity as an MP with four wheel V8 car, “I tell you what my tank is full, the fact that God has blessed me does not mean I should not come out to defend the poor people; if I cannot defend the poor people then I do not have business being in politics”.

Mr. Ras Mubarak further lamented and questioned, “are they saying people have not been sacked from work, people like journalists are not losing their work, people are home and do not have food to eat?”

The rich people and the upper class are full, and poor people hungry; our taxes are being used to buy fuel for the rich people, he noted.

He further pointed out that if a lot of people decide to ride bicycle to work it would decongest our roads and keep the population healthy, adding he want to do more.

As to how long he would be doing this he said it could be twice a week and he promised to ride back home after adjournment of Parliament.
